The costume closes in the back with its original hook-and-loop fasteners and the wardrobe tag, notated “Joseph Koziel,” is sewn into a seam in the pants. Black stirrups are attached to the ends of the pant legs to hold them in place. An MGM identification label with a property receipt number is attached to the undershirt. In very good condition, with some moth holes to the pants. Accompanied by a wardrobe test still of Koziel wearing the costume and a certificate of authenticity from Startifacts.
